Ok, I just got used fender bassman head made back in the 70s. The head is rated at 4 ohms. If I were to use an 8 ohm cab with it would that damage the head other than not having as much output?

i dont think it would have enough power to drive the cab

edit: i dont know if it would hurt it. Im taking a crazy guess. Maybe it would overload it some how?

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.
it would work, of course.

but with mismatched impedences you run the risk of damaging the speaker/output transformers of the amp.

some amps can do that just fine, most of them you shouldnt. some amps, that will really mess them up.
